Vote: VETO

Without impugning Tao's abilities or the scope of his future 
contributions, a few of the contributions listed are quite simple. The 
OpenJDK guidelines [1] state:

"As a rough guide, for any given Project, a Contributor should make at 
least eight significant contributions before being nominated."

I do not feel that all the 8 contributions referenced meet the criteria 
of being "significant", and that therefore this request for Committer 
status is a little premature.
